Get set to sizzle!
You will need:
- One whole fresh oyster (available from a good fishmonger’s)
- Half a teaspoon of dried cinnamon
- Half a teaspoon of dried mint
- 12 inches of red ribbon
Oysters are said to have aphrodisiac qualities, but using them in magic makes this effect even stronger. Open the shell and remove the insides (it’s OK if the shell splits into two halves). Wash each half of the shell thoroughly with washing-up liquid, and rinse. Mix together the dried cinnamon and mint, and place this on one half of the shell. Fit the other half of the shell on top. Bind them together with the ribbon and recite:
Pleasure is mine.
My words he will hear,
Loud and clear.’
Then pop the oyster under his pillow and get set to sizzle!
